Support Regenerative Culture

  • developing my own creative practice, particularly making visual art and writing, both for my own personal exploration and for creative climate engagement with audiences.
  • developing Climate Museum UK, a distributed and experimental museum stirring and collecting responses to the Earth crisis, and building the capacity of cultural workers to engage audiences in these issues. Building capacity includes supporting emerging practitioners joining our collective. I’m also building up collections of books, music and thousands of digital resources.
  • supporting Culture Declares Emergency, a movement of individuals and organisations in arts and culture declaring a climate and ecological emergency. (For example, I’ve written content for a new website coming soon, which builds on my Culture Takes Action framework.)
  • professional support, such as being a critical friend to UP Projects and on the advisory board of Culture Unstained.
  • activism — showing up at protests and supporting creative campaigns for peace, climate justice and to end ecocide and the influence of fossil fuel companies.
  • speaking at many conferences and events, advocating for a regenerative cultural sector that is ecocentric and ‘possitopian’, which in turn can inspire a regenerative world.
  • supporting research and emerging practitioners, for example, giving interviews to MA or PhD students, supporting student placements and mentoring young people.
  • writing and publishing articles for academic journals on regenerative culture.
  • using social media, attending events, having one-to-one chats, and being in a range of networks to have conversations that further ideas about regenerative culture.

So, this post lays out an invitation to those of who would like to support this Regenerative Culture leadership, if you have time and interest and can see mutual benefits to this support.
